your commander in chief. >> reporter: it had been an obama family day. malia and sasha, dad and mom. as america paid tribute. an inaugural parade that showed off the nation's talent and diversity. >> i, barack hussein obama, do solemnly swear. >> reporter: the presidential's ceremonial swearing-in witnessed by as many as 1 million people. >> congratulations, mr. obama. >> reporter: mr. obama urged cooperation, rare now in washington, to cut health care costs and the deficit. >> but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will buildi its future. >> reporter: we can make progress, he said, on immigration, gay rights, climate change and school safety. a night to remember for the obamas and for the nation that re-elected the president. i'm steve handelsman, nbc news, washington. >>> president obama never used the words "democrat" or "republican" in his second inaugural address, but his political message was clear, progressive policies along with a directive for leaders that define us as
's glimpses of malia and sasha obama got our facebook page going with comments and well wishes. mary says they're not the same little girls that they were four years ago. michael says i'm sure we're going to see great things from them in the future. they even inspired folks on the other side of the aisle. lisa says while obama wasn't my choice, i can't argue how sweet these girls are. more on the first daughters coming up later. but first, we want to hear what you think too. please head over to facebook and search "politicsnation" and like us to join the conversation that keeps going long after the show ends. in america today we're running out of a vital resource we need to compete on the global stage. what we need are people prepared for the careers of our new economy. by 2025 we could have 20 million jobs without enough college graduates to fill them. that's why at devry university, we're teaming up with companies like cisco to help make sure everyone is ready with the know-how we need for a new tomorrow.

sasha and malia obama grow up right before our eyes. malia is now a high school freshman and her little sister, sasha, is in her first year of medical school -- not medical school. middle school. she didn't grow up that fast. >> maybe one day. >> maybe. never know. she's smart enough. nbc's kristen welker is live at the white house with a look at the first daughters. hello, kristen. >> reporter: hey, alex. well, good afternoon. it is amazing how much they have grown, though, and those who know the family well say these next four years will bring new challenges and some new perks. >> and now, the president of the united states. >> reporter: the night belonged to their father. but when malia and sasha stepped onto the stage at grant park election night it was hard not to marvel at how much they had matured. >> even i was struck on election night this year just seeing how much they have grown from four years ago. >> reporter: they were so young when they moved into the white house. sasha just 7 and malia 10. now at 11 and 14, even the president recently remarked at how much has changed for
. sasha and malia joked around and made their parents kiss while they snapped a photo. malia is 14. sasha is 11. this picture went viral. it's president clinton sneaking a peek at "american idol" star kelly clarkson as she walked to the podium to sing. and speaking of songs, listen to this. ♪ obama's on fire ♪ obama's on fire >> alicia keys also sang the president had both feet on the ground and is not backing down. and of course, what would an inauguration be without souvenirs. this is from the official gift shop. there we go. it's a hat. how much did this cost? i can't even see that. $16.50. you have your real fake ticket to the event. that was $10 but you get the lanyard with it. that's my actual real pass. pen. i thought this was the funniest thing. a kid had a sign saying this is my college money and sold a pack of hand warmers for $5. of course, i was stupid enough to buy them. but i was contributing to his college fund, right? anyway, if you read only one thing this morning, i don't know about you, but one of my take-aways from the inauguration is how amazing the first daughter
. all right. thank you, everybody. >> and in case you didn't hear that last part, sasha said you didn't mess up. in reference to the first time he took the oath in 2009. last night the president and first laid yea long with the vice president and mrs. biden all attended an inaugural reception where each of them spoke. here's a taste on how that evening went. >> thank you so much for joining us tonight. but more than that, thank you for the kindness, friendship and support that you've shown us since we've begun this long journey together. >> hello, i am jill biden's husband and i'm delighted to be with you all here. in the weeks and months ahead, we're going to reduce gun violence here in america. we're going to pass comprehensive immigration reform. and we're going to put this nation's economy on a sustainable path to the future. >> and let me tell you, it is just been a true thrill to watch this handsome, charming individual grow into the man and the president that he is. >> first of all, i love michelle obama. and to address the most significant vent of this weekend, i love her bang
about the debate as they see it. they are focusing in on the president's daughters, sasha and melee in the ad saying they have security at their school so why shouldn't the children of other americans? let me get your reaction to that. the white house obviously coming out against it. what is your thought there? >> i just saw a bit of that ad and i think it's terribly mistaken. the president's children are in a different category in one sense, but the real issue is whether all the children of this country will be safeguarded. i think that means some resources in the schools, but it means way beyond it. there is violence beyond the schools on street corners everywhere. what we are doing is saying what if it were a family member? that permanentization is very, very legitimate and makes newtown a seminole event. i think the ground is changing. >> the nra if the ground is changing, it may be dividing democrats and the nra and gun rights folks and gun control advocates even more. the nra said attacking firearms and ignoring children is not a solution to the crisis we face as a nation. onl
them candidly for long time, teasing each other, laughing, sasha, the younger daughter taking pictures of her own parents, and them sort of mugging for her. her sister mugsing for some friend who she saw nearby. mom helping the girls with coats and bottles of water and iphones. dad getting caught checking his blackberry, and at one point teasing his girls. we do not usually see them this way. we see them usually in the hyper restrained dignity that is demanded of formal occasions and heads of state. for whatever reason, and i really hope they did not mind us seeing them this way. for a long stretch of time we got to seem them while the parade was going by, just hanging out and having a great time. being able to see the overlap between our regular humanity and the ceremony and celebration of greatness, of great office, of great achievement is always a moving thing. we're reminded that -- reminded of that in this city of monuments, monuments to human achievement that are rendered, of course, super human in their scale. we're reminded of this on days that are full of pageantry and ceremon
address to take place, we believe they are here at the white house right now. we have a good look at sasha obama, the youngest daugt e of the oobamas today after the swearing in took place and she looked at her dad and said, you didn't mess it up. he said i didn't, and it was a cute moment there. and there was a candlelight session that took place here, and tomorrow the ceremonies really pick up, and the first family will be 100 yards from where i am standing at the reviewing stand and they will be watching the parade as it passes and the inaugural planners will be hoping that the weather holds, because it is a spectacular day in the 60 compared to temperatures in the teens and windchills in the 40s a four years ago. and that is not the case here. the president and the family will walk over to the st. john's church and the church of the president as it is so often known for the first family before the inaugural swearing in and then the parade and then the ball, and ten of them four years ago, but just two, and still pretty good ones this time around. >> peter alexander from the white house
david keene on this morning, still defending the ad saying it is not about malea and sasha obama and "the washington post" gave them four pinnochios for the ad and one thing they point to is the ad says that the president skeptical about armed security guards in school when in the interview the president had with david gregory he said he was skeptical it's the only answer is putting more guns in school. that was the exact quote that they have pointed out. they then go on to talk about the security at sidwell school and say that the numbers or this image that's purported in this web ad is also not correct. that there's no such armed guards there. to take the president's words out of context, michael, to misrepresenting this armed force that they were implying is at the school of these children and then pretending that they weren't talking about the president's children when it was clear of that case, does that only appeal to the fringe or do you have some moderate republicans, michael, out there and they see it was a misrepresentation and that it crossed some kind of line? >> frin
bringing sasha and malia specifically. >> the nra is a joaquin style joke or a false flag operation run by michael moore. >> it's a key part of the conservative entertainment model. >> she was double fisting babies. the babies. >> i found the use of children borderline creepy. >> i consider it a form of child abuse. >> coming up on fox and friends, honey, they shrunk the foot long. >> stunning. >> there will be pundits and politicians warning of a tyrannical all-out assault on liberty. >> president doesn't have the guts to admit it, he's not a believer in the second amendment. >> the founding fathers didn't want to let the president become a king. >> i am your king. >> president obama may have this king complex. >> and why does he get to veto bills and command an army. >> we're going to take sure it doesn't happen. >> joining me is joy reid and another anti-impeer yis, driaan milbank. have you seen this man? his name is john boehner. he was last seen in washington when he was re-elected speaker of the house. there are reports he and the house gop are at an annual retreat in williamsburg
they've cut with sasha and malia. i don't think the war on the atf is a broadly resonant issue in american public life -- >> but they're trying to be broadly resonant. >> but they aren't trying to be broadly resonant. and the question, it gets back to the senate republican question, does the party, dot legislators go along with that? do they recognize -- when they were sitting around capitol hill, all of them, watching wayne lapierre up on their tv screens, did they recognize how terrible that looked toefrn? do they understand that? and doe think in the post-gerrymandered 13th congress with those districts that are going to be there for ten years, do they think it matters? do they think the voters in their district matter enough because they've kind of gotten themselves some nice sin koours, to respond to that? >> that's right. and in the senate there aren't those districts -- >> exactly. >> that's where the confirmation is going to be fascinating. you are totally right. that's so great. chris hayes is the host of "up with chris hayes," weekend mornings here on msnbc. thank you
walking down the reviewing stand. sasha and malia behind them. let's see if we can get him to respond to a question. plaintiff president, how does it feel to be a two-term president? >> very honorable try. that was a magnificent attempt. >> thank you, martin. we try. you always -- you never know what you're going to get but they seem exuberant as they're waving to the crowds, excited about this moment. the first family will be watching the parade in the reviewing stand along with the vice president and his family as well as congressional leaders, supreme court justices, elementary school students, and also, martin, members of the tuskegee airmen. so it's going to be a very full reviewing stand, and a little bit of history for you. this tradition of the president reviewing the parade from the white house first started back in 1873 under president grant. so president obama today continuing a tradition that started a very, very long time ago, but certainly the first family cherishing really this moment. this moment when they get to sit and just really take it all in. martin? >> you know,
. also caught on camera, the first family acting like a typical american family, with malia and sasha obama snapping pictures of each other, laughing, and in the finest tradition of children anywhere, egging their parents on. then the inaugural balls. four years ago, there were ten. last night, there were just two. the first lady wore a red gown by designer jason wu to the commander in chief ball, the same designer she wore to the first inaugural. >> ladies and gentlemen, my better half and my dance partner, michelle obama. ♪ i, i'm so in love with you >> jennifer hudson wasn't the only one serenading the president and first lady. you had stevie wonder, john legend, and alicia keys among the other performers last night. here's aleasicia keys with a special version of her hit, "girl on fire." ♪ he's the president and he's on fire ♪ ♪ hotter than a fantasy ♪ obama's on fire ♪ obama's on fire >> nbc's peter alexander is live at the white house now. now, peter, i understand you have a song prepared for us. >> reporter: yeah, no, i was just going to perform for you. actually, i
cited the president's daughters, sasha and malia, in an ad attacking the president as an elitist hypocrite on guns. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school? mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. >> joining me now is susan page, washington bureau chief for "usa today" and ron fournier, national correspondent and editorial director for the "national journal." good morning. >> good morning. >> morning. >> so the president's children, doesn't matter, republican, democrat, are generally considered off-limits. ron, what do you make of this nra ad? >> they really blew it. this is an organization that has a lot of power and a lot of credibility and has a legitimate purpose in our society to protect the second amendment but why would you put out an ad like that that is false? the president is not opposed to security in the schools. he does no
saw the presidential daughters, malia and sasha obama making their way to the inaugural platform area proceeding their grandmother, of course. i will say, just on human terms, seeing them talking to each other and talking to each other and sharing a joke and laughing and being together throughout that entire long walk down to the very public spot, that makes me happy. >> the other thing that makes me happy, originally, is you are going through the rundown of the day, if you look at the people represented in that moment, the widow of medgar evers, sonia sotomayor, the first woman of color on the supreme court there to swear in joe biden, and then to see the daughters, two african-american first daughters, maybe i'm a little emotional because i have a nearly 11-year-old daughter, but there is something about that intergenerational perspective of women of color to be in this moment when we know the history of both women and people of color in this country that i find extraordinary about the kind of intersections that this presidency makes possible. >> this is a rare camera shot. we don't
-elected. >> nothing against people in the second row. laura? >> i thought the girls looked great, sasha and malia. >> a lot of people will be talking about the fashion today, no doubt. and the weather made news across the midwest and great lakes and we had cold air and horrible accidents through the region and has now swept into d.c. after three unbelievably beautiful days, coldest weather of the season arriving in d.c. and windchill in negative numbers and this morning, we're down to 8. chicago, dangerous in minneapolis and windchill, minus 26. one of those mornings, bundle the kids up, talking max clothing and gear and snow on cape cod, be careful driving there and through buffalo and erie, you also have to watch out for slippery travel. you can see much of the great lakes with the snow. look at the high temperature in minneapolis. it will be 1 today. that's it. 1. and temperatures in the freezing mark in many east coast cities. d.c. had a little issue with any forecast with snow a couple days ago. they missed, didn't get anything. another chance for snow, not just d.c. but everyone on the east
's youngest daughter sasha offered her approval. >> congratulations mr. president. >> thank you, mr. chief justice. thank you so much. >> congratulations. >> thank you, sweetie. >> hey. thank you. >> good job, daddy. >> i did it. all right. thank you, everybody. >> so cute. >> didn't mess up. >> good girls. all right. so we've got the start of a new chapter for the 51-year-old president. >> you know after a divided first four years in office he starts anew. there's a lot of hope inside the white house and outside the white house that the next four years will be better than the last as far as actually washington working together. today he's going to be publicly sworn in from the capitol overlooking the national mall followed by the inaugural address. >> and today is expected to take on a less spectacular tone than came with the messages of hope and change that drew huge crowds in 2009. one thing that hasn't changed, "morning joe" -- >> we're here. >> yeah we're back at the watering hole back where we were four years ago live at the dubliner. oh that's us four years ago?
